Malabrigo Hat

Lovely, lovely hat. Soft, warm, yummy! Sadly not for me, but I hear my sister is enjoying it.

I used the Top-Down Hat pattern from The Knitting Man(ual), which so far has been worth the price of the book as I have made three hats from it. The yarn is Malabrigo Merino Worsted, and the colorway is such a beautiful blend of greens and blues and reminds me of the ocean. I want an entire blanket knit of this yarn, but I am not wealthy - or patient - enough for that.

There is actually a decent amount of yarn leftover so I want to do something with it. I don't know if there's enough for another hat, but I may try for it.

Some Ravelers have been able to knit two Amanda Hats from a single skein of Malabrigo. So it stands to reason that you can get one from the leftovers.

Great to know that - thanks!

I am always worried about running out of yarn (as if my life would come to a screeching halt). I am just not good enough at gaging how much yarn will make how much stuff.

The hat is beautiful, I am glad Nancy likes it.
